Bravo Hospitality Group, the highly regarded hospitality management company, headquartered in Schiller Park, Illinois, has built a reputation on its expert oversight of select-service hotels with full-service restaurants and bars. Today, they are further solidifying that reputation with the implementation of STS Cloud and ProposalPath.
With multiple properties, including the 160-room Comfort Suites of the Choice Hotel family, and the 149-room Four Points By Sheraton, Bravo Hospitality identified the need for a truly customizable sales and catering solution. Earlier this year, Bravo Hospitality joined forces with SalesAndCatering.com in search of a platform upgrade and, following a successful initial implementation, they have upgraded all four to STS Cloud + ProposalPath.
I have been working closely with Rick at SalesAndCatering.com for about 3 years now, and he has been such a wonderful resource for myself and my sales teams. Dani Ferraro, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing at Bravo Hospitality Group
One of the notable perks of STS Cloud, beyond its unrivaled affordability and flexibility, is the ease of implementation it offers. The STS Cloud platform, in addition to ProposalPath, is a winning combination and requires little to no staff training. Unlike competitor platforms on the market or legacy solutions of the past, STS Cloud can be up and running in days rather than weeks.
Setting up both systems was so easy and painless, shares Ferraro.
Even more importantly, though, SalesAndCatering.com’s platforms are completely customizable and were quickly tailored to meet the unique needs of each of our properties. This level of customization has helped my teams and me tremendously.
STS Cloud is a next-generation, cloud-based, securely hosted sales and catering software, which takes care of CRM functions, catering needs, document workflows, booking management, lead management, reporting, and so much more. ProposalPath, on the other hand, is a cloud-based, end-to-end sales solution that integrates seamlessly into a hotel sales team’s existing infrastructure to streamline RFPs, and create engaging, visually beautiful and effective proposals.
With both of these tools at their disposal, we have no doubt that properties within the Bravo Hospitality Group portfolio are in the best possible position to close more business and make a lasting impression on current and prospective clients. Ryan Hamilton, Co-Founder of SalesAndCatering.com
Sales teams close contracts up to 33% faster with ProposalPath. Property catering menus, A/V pricing, fact sheets, and other sales collateral are securely hosted and shared seamlessly between team members and clients.
Rick and his team have even gone above and beyond to create custom templates for two of our properties, Ferraro explains.
This has helped us keep our operations departments happy and has helped to ensure our clients understood the documents with ease. Our partnership with SalesAndCatering.com has been nothing short of a huge success so far, and we can’t wait to see what the future brings.
